Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

35 ILCS 200/9-85

    (35 ILCS 200/9-85)
    Sec. 9-85. Revision of assessments by county assessor and board of review; Counties of 3,000,000 or more. In counties with 3,000,000 or more inhabitants, the county assessor shall have authority annually to revise the assessment books and correct them as appears to be just; and on complaint in writing in proper form by any taxpayer, and after affording the taxpayer an opportunity to be heard thereon, he or she shall do so at any time, until the assessment is verified. An entry upon the assessment books does not constitute an assessment until the assessment is verified. When a notice is to be mailed under Section 12-55 and the address that appears on the assessor's records is the address of a mortgage lender or the trustee, where title to the property is held in a land trust, or in any event whenever the notice is mailed by the assessor to a taxpayer at or in care of the address of a mortgage lender or a trustee where the title to the property is held in a land trust, the mortgage lender or the trustee within 15 days of the mortgage lender's or the trustee's receipt of such notice shall mail a copy of the notice to each mortgagor of the property referred to in the notice at the last known address of each mortgagor as shown on the records of the mortgage lender, or to each beneficiary as shown on the records of the trustee.
    All changes and alterations pursuant to Section 16-95 or Section 16-120 in the assessment of property shall be subject to revision and entry into the assessment books by the board of appeals (until the first Monday in December 1998 and the board of review beginning the first Monday in December 1998 and thereafter) in the same manner as the original assessments.
